Veterans around town, the instrumental outfit of Echo Canyon is either a jam band that’s not afraid to rock or a rock band that’s not scared to jam. It’s a tough balance, but the wailing guitars and shouting saxophones toe the line with deft musicianship and catchy dynamism. Even in a night propelled by amazing guitar work all around, this act may just wear the crown.

Think: The soundtrack for your high-speed chase from the bad vibes police.
